What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Delphiniums for me too Lyn.  You have reminded me to get some more.....lazy me, I buy in young plants in March that usually produce excellent spires in early summer.

Is it too cold to do hedge cutting?

Posted: 02/12/2014 at 20:25

Well I cut hedges throughout the year but it is late for it now.  Whatever your hedge Jon I would leave cutting it until  spring.

Planting potted Daphne in garden

Postil, for me, is quite  vigorous grower.  Daphnes are fickle though, aren't they?  Mezereum doesn't like to be moved as I found to my cost.  And a Somerest I moved died too.  Aureomarginata seems to move quite easily as does Eternal Fragrance.  However, they aren't the longest living shrubs in my experience.

if mine, I would prob plant out Dotypoo's daphne as is without disturbing roots even if rootbound.  Most every other shrubs I would loosen roots

Planting potted Daphne in garden

sure it will be rootbound.  6 years is long time in a pot for this daphne.  I wonder when or if Dotypoo has repotted it at all.....ideally within past couple of years.  If so, I guess we are united Dave
